Ever inspired by the beauty of nature, Van Cleef & Arpels pays tribute to its enchantment through two watchmaking creations imbued with a delicate poetry, each telling a wonderful fairytale.
On the Charms Coccinelle Féerique watch – bathed in the colors of dawn thanks to miniature painting work on the dial’s mother-of-pearl – a graceful fairy seems to flutter through the dial to encounter a ladybug, perched on a green leaf.
The art of enamel, miniature painting, stone setting and gold engraving come together to give rise to this highly complex miniature tableau, revealing a striking relief.
Several emblematic techniques are here assembled: cabochonné enamel gives the ladybug a life-like volume, while miniature painting and white-mother-of-pearl glitters breathes movement to the leaves. The Sun sheds its light on the scene thanks to its yellow sapphires.
Echoing the story told by the creation, a ladybug charm adorns the piece, its rubies illuminating the passing hours.
The combination of crafts and mastery of Van Cleef & Arpels watchmaking workshops endow the timepiece with the wonders of nature, like an invitation to dream.
